Cooler Master MasterLiquid 360 Atmos Liquid CPU Cooler Review

Final Thoughts

I have to come right out and say it – I think Cooler Master has a great product on their hands with the MasterLiquid 360 Atmos. The updated pump housing not only offers upgraded visual aesthetics in the physical design, but in lighting as well. Not to mention, the pump and inner chamber design is constantly being improved by Cooler Master, which is apparent in the cooling performance and expected lifespan of the pump. Then we have the ARGB-outfitted SickleFlow Edge fans with their capable static pressure levels that have no trouble pushing air through the 360mm radiator. Add in the ability to remove and add a custom pump cover with your own 3D printed design, and customize how the lighting comes through, and you have a nicely updated AIO.

With regards to performance, the 360 Atmos sat right around the middle of both our idle and load charts, but to be fair, that space is shared with many other coolers that offer the same levels of cooling performance. With a much higher static pressure rating, the SickleFlow Edge fans can also spin a bit slower and still force air through the radiator at lower sound levels, so that is definitely something to consider as well.

MasterLiquid 360 Atmos

Overall I think Cooler Master has designed a great AIO with the Master Liquid 360 Atmos, and with a suggested price of just $159.99 for the 360mm version, there is a ton of value to be had. Not only are you getting a cooler that performs well, you are also getting three fans with addressable LEDs, a dedicated lighting controller, customizable pump cover, and software to control the lighting. Make sure this cooler is on your list of those you are considering if you are looking to get into the AIO market. The Cooler Master MasterLiquid 360 Atmos gets a 9 out of 10 and the Recommended Award.
